  1. This is great information. I be there are a lot of uninformed people out there and this will help!

  2. This is excellent info. I was always taught that running was terrible for you knees. I even had a doctor tell me that recently! O_o

  3. My husband and daughter are runners and I can attest to the fact that everything you are sharing is all the advice they have gotten from coaches – especially when it comes to reducing the impact of running on one’s knees. Great resource!

  4. This will clear up a common misconception for many people. I know lots of people who believe this still.

  5. I am one of those people! I thought running was bad for your knees (you just busted my bubble of excuses) I find that I must have bad form because I feel it in my shins and I’m afraid to get shin splints. I guess you need to come down and teach me!

    1. Hahaha! This made me giggle, “you just busted my bubble of excuses” … come on Rachel .. you know you want to be a runner 😛 lol

  15. It’s always nice to hear these kinds of things. This is the kind of info you file away in your mind for when you need it. 🙂

  16. I think this is even good advice if you’re just a walker like I am…I always try to make sure all my shoes have enough cushion in them – my ankles & knees ache otherwise!
